About us

Wolfs Advocaten B.V. is based in Maastricht and Amsterdam with a visit location in Venlo. Wolfs Advocaten offers legal solutions for entrepreneurs in the Netherlands and abroad. The firm covers all areas of law that our clients face and specialises in (international) corporate advice and litigation, (international) commercial law, (international) transport law, business law, customs law, insurance law and employment law.

Since 2003

The firm was established in 2003 by John Wolfs. John Wolfs, himself a thoroughbred entrepreneur, has been practicing as an attorney for almost 25 years. After his career working at a number of leading firms including in Washington DC and Rotterdam (Houthoff), he chose Maastricht as the location to establish Wolfs Advocaten. This was due to his Maastricht roots and the quality of life in this region. Since 2015, Wolfs Advocaten has also an office based in the logistics hotspot of Venlo (visiting address). Since October 2019, Wolfs Advocaten has been working closely with Kingfisher. The two firms will continue to work together in Amsterdam under the joint name of Wolfs Kingfisher Advocaten.

Experts and team players

Wolfs Advocaten now consists of a young, dynamic team of around 15 attorneys, lawyers and support staff. Wolfs Advocaten employs true team players, who make efficient and optimum use of each other’s expertise. You know and will otherwise find that we are businesslike, realistic, effective and accessible, as well as being expert in ‘our’ legal areas. Our philosophy is that law is a tool that primarily has to be used effectively and practically and only serves one purpose: unhindered continuation of your business activities.

Long-term relationships

Our clients often choose to enter into a long-term business relationship with our firm. Many of our clients are logistic, industrial and trading companies, as well as insurance companies, insurance intermediaries, foreign lawyers, housing corporations and care providers who value the services provided by Wolfs Advocaten.


Wolfs Advocaten has entered into a cooperative working arrangement with Ron Meulmeester (Kingfisher Advocaten). Wolfs Advocaten will in certain cases engage Ron Meulmeester (through Kingfisher Advocaten). This work is covered by the professional liability insurance of Wolfs Advocaten if and to the extent the work is taken out on behalf of Wolfs Advocaten.
